About this Item

11 3/4" X 8 1/4", 256pgs. Kevin McGimpsey and Stewart Orr - the curators of the Chester Toy Museum, which displays one of the largest Models of Yesteryear collections in the world - have compiled the most authoritative, comprehensive and interesting book of its kind. Within its 256 pages the detailed copy is illuminated by 32 full colour plates displaying over 400 Yesteryear models in different guises. 200 black and white photographs show every major issue and over 200 perfectly drawn diagrams supplement the text to further explain the casting modifications made to many of the models. In all, 1,300 carefully checked and authenticated issues have been recorded and documented within this book. The vast majority of issues have been afforded an international market value. The authors have also included on each page a subjective investment comment that should prove most useful to new collectors when considering which models to add to their collections. All box types, the terminology as used by collectors and details on how to join the official Matchbox Club, are also included in the book. See picture. B-44. Bookseller Inventory # ABE-1366221592
